AMERICAN IDOL Goes to Omaha…by Guest Blogger Aaron

January 30, 2008 by  

I’m a selfish, selfish blogger, and as a result I couldn’t bring myself to recap last night’s AMERICAN IDOL. Sorry, but I’m so over the audition shows that I couldn’t fathom watching and then trying to find something witty so say about them. I’m so ready for the good singers. We saw a few last night but I’m ready to hear real talent…all the time. Bring on Hollywood Week…please!!

Despite being a bit bored by it all, there was one moment last night that stood out as perhaps the funniest of the young season (at least to me). Did you guys see when that one chick got through to Hollywood despite impressing Simon…she’s doing a talking head with the camera and says: “I’m going to prove Simon wrong and show him that I’m America’s Next Top Model!“. Ha ha ha ha…LOVED it!! I think I watched that scene at least 10 times. It’s the little things.

Although I’m being selfish (and lazy) I know that many of you still want to talk about all things IDOL. To that end, today we have a guest blogger to fill us in on things IDOL. Read on as my friend Aaron (of TV with MeeVee) breaks down last night’s Omaha auditions with the witty banter that I just couldn’t muster. Funny stuff!!



AmericanidolinomahaAmerican Idol” heads to Nebraska tonight, for corn-fed cuties and a midwestern flair to auditions and hopefuls. Paula’s plane is delayed, but they go ahead and get started anyway, with Nebraska’s biggest “American Idol” fan, Chris Bernheisel, of Fremont, Nebraska. (That’s not him in the picture on the right. That’s just some photo I ripped from the Fox site. Yeah, shameless, I know.)

Chris brings the judges some and shows them some pictures of himself with Kelly Clarkson. He tells Simon and Randy “This is the biggest moment of my life,” and that he’s “been waiting for this moment for so long,” before almost bursting into tears with gratitude. Then he attempts to sing “Since You Been Gone.”

Of course he’s trying that one. Can he do it? Of course not. The only time I’ve heard that song butchered more was when I sang it at my girlfriend’s office Christmas party, and that got karaoke banned from all future office activities. Not just at her work- also at the bar that hosted the party.

Chris’ voice may be like a horrible disease, but his enthusiasm is what’s infectious: Simon says he’ll get the kid a gig reporting for the local Fox affiliate from the red carpet at the “Idol” finale. He’s the Nebraskan Ryan Seacrest. Not sure if that’s a good thing or not, but let’s move on. After the jump: More missed notes! Will someone carry a tune?

I’m going to go ahead and reveal right now, even before the jump, that the best line of the entire evening is “I’m going to prove Simon wrong and
show him that I’m America’s Next Top Model! I mean… uh…”

    What was wrong with Paula last night? She was acting either drunk or on drugs. What a wacko! Maybe her plane wasn’t late at all…..maybe the producers were just trying to sober her up or something.

    I totally agree that Paula looked totally wacko last night. Did anyone else hear the voice-over when her she was lying with her head down on the table? And that whole schpiel with getting Ryan to be a guest judge was obviously an excuse to let Paula leave the room to sober up.

    So Chris from Fremont (which is only a 45 min drive from Omaha) also got approached by Access Hollywood to do red carpet stuff for them as well! Yesterday morning on the radio they were calling him our ‘Ross the Intern’ 🙂
